Are you taking the hydroxyzine for the antihistamine or for anxiety?
If for the antihistamine then there are other otc's you can get including some fairly inexpensive generic ones.
If it is for anxiety then the others don't work as well for that and I don't know of any otc's that work for anxiety other than L-theanine which can be bought at health food stores and be cautious with that to make sure it doesn't conflict with any prescription meds.
